All That False Instruction
by Kerryn Higgs

A Spinifex feminist classic, and winner of the Angus and Robertson manuscript prize.

Growing up in a rural working-class home, Maureen Craig rebels against her angry mother, the privileges of her favoured brother and the relentless conformity of 1950s Australia. University promises a new world both terrifying and exhilarating in its challenges. She explores her sexuality and sets out to make a place for herself in the world. Passionate, funny and heartbreaking, this remarkable novel traces a young woman’s turbulent coming of age. Originally published under the pseudonym Elizabeth Riley. This edition includes an Introduction by Harriet Malinowitz and an Afterword by the author.

Kerryn Higgs is a novelist, activist and songwriter. Along with many other fabulous Spinifex authors, Kerryn will be participating in our forthcoming conference:
